Spanish Learning

I will be discussing my Spanish learning process and the best methods to use.

Learning Spanish with Songs
07 July 2011 @ 06:12

What I most enjoyed about learning Spanish was that when I knew I was improving, I knew that I could communicate that little bit better with native speakers and that I could understand more of what was going on around me. Knowing a language opens up many different opportunities to learn a new culture and interact in a natural way.

When I first started listening to the Spanish radio I couldn't understand any of the song lyrics (except for 'La Bamba' which we had learned in school). But as I progressed the lyrics that I heard started to make more and more sense. I decided to delve into some of songs that I liked the most and study them a little. I first listened without looking up the lyrics, then read the lyrics while listening. The next thing I did was to look up the meaning of the different words and phrases used. Then I sang along trying to memorize the lyrics.

There is a danger that you'll take the lyrics and use them in everyday conversation, when the lyrics used don't work that way. But you should be able to know what will work in conversation and what won't. Here is a list of 5 Spanish songs to help you learn Spanish. These are some of my most memorable songs while in my first year of Spain. All of them have the lyrics in the videos so that you don't have to look them up.

What songs have you enjoyed while living in Spain? Have you tried to learn Spanish through music?
